Floyd Award for Outstanding Publication in Microbiology Requirements
The Floyd Award for Outstanding Publication in Microbiology is available for graduate students performing research in microbiology. The student does not need to remain enrolled to receive this award (i.e., may have already graduated).
To be eligible, the publication must have been accepted for publication within the last year and must be in a peer-reviewed journal.
The Floyd Award for Outstanding Publication in Microbiology is not open for applications; instead nominations will be sought from faculty advisors. Recipients will be selected by faculty from the IU Bloomington Department of Biology.

- The completed manuscript (including all supplemental materials).
- A letter listing the nominee's name and citation for the publication in the format: Author Last Name, First Name, et al. Year. Title. Journal Volume: Pages. In the letter, describe the significance and impact of the publication.
